Newly-appointed Chief of the German General Staff Paul von Hindenburg and his deputy Erich Ludenforff hurried to Berlin on August 29 for an emergency war-meeting with the Kaiser. Romania joining the Allies and invading Austria-Hungary was the most pressing concern, but the duo also urged their monarch to begin unrestricted submarine warfare immediately, no matter the affect on the neutral Scandinavian countries, the United States, or indeed the German civilian government. The same day Hindenburg wrote to the Minister of War, demanding that munitions production be doubled and the production of artillery and machine-guns trebled.

Attempting to exploit a loophole in international laws against the uses of gas in warfare, some German officials noted that only gas projectiles appeared to be specifically banned, and that no prohibition could be found against simply releasing deadly chemical weapons and allowing th wind to carry it to the enemy
